FlightNight Saturday 21st December 2019

Hi All,

We're heading full speed and wedding tackle first for Christmas and it's up to FGUK, as usual, to save the world.

There's been a terrible accident and the presents for the under-privileged children of the Northern Hemisphere have been left at Bergen airport after Santa attended an elf conference there earlier this week.



We need to find some aircraft to move the presents back from Bergen (ENBR) and fly them to Stockholm (ESSB) so they can be transferred back to the big man himself. Half time break will be at Torsby (ESST)

As it's Christmas we won't be too strict on the aircraft as long as you enjoy flying it and it can handle a little bit of twisty stuff BUT it must be able to carry at least 1000kg of presents for those poor children.

Speeds will be between 250kts and 300kts so your aircraft must be comfortable at that speed.
Please post your aircraft choice before 1200 on Saturday 20th so we can avoid Blue Gliders and IF You are bringing a non FGUK hangar aircraft then please post a working downloadable link to an archive of it before 1200 on Friday 20th.

See you at ENBR at 8pm UK time on Saturday.

By the way feel free to publish the private FGUK MP servers for this event if you feel like
using them instead of the public ones...

a400m is just shy of 300 kts IAS at 10k, so that's a possible, or the C17.

Options are a bit limited in the fguk hangar, but since we can use non fguk aircraft, I might fly this: Lockheed L-188 github.com/FGMEMBERS/Lockheed-L-188 or Vickers Vanguard
